Sommelier Scholarship Application

2017 Sommelier Scholarship Applications are closed. Applications for next year will open soon.

The BC Hospitality Foundation Sommelier Scholarships are sponsored by Okanagan Crush Pad (OCP) and Authentic Wine and Spirits Merchants. These scholarships are a mentorship program designed to further individual study in wine education. Up to four $1000.00 scholarships are awarded every year.

To apply, you will need:

  • A 500 word essay on why you need and deserve a $1000 scholarship from the BC Hospitality Foundation
  • Academic transcripts – WSET, ISG or Court of Master Sommeliers
  • Two (2) reference letters from non-family members
  • Cover letter

Students applying must currently work in the hospitality and/or wine industry, in British Columbia. Students must have completed WSET Level 3, ISG Level 2 or the Certified Sommelier Examination via the Court of Master Sommeliers. Students should have an application to their next course in progress when applying for scholarship.

Applications are EASY and the award is substantial.

Scholarship applications are sent to a 15-member industry committee for review. Winners will be notified in writing, in advance of the presentation.

Good luck!
